Happy Wine Wednesday! Today, we are talking about a red wine from Ken Wright Cellars. This wine actually has a funny backstory to how I come about it. Do you want to hear it? Okay, good:)
I had one of my best friends in town and we went out to this adorable wine bar in Old Towne Scottsdale called Kazimierz World Wine Bar. I immediately fell in love with it! Anyways, while we were there, we met some… interesting older gentlemen, and a middle age guy who saved us from said older gentlemen;) One gave us the recommendation to try this and, long story short, I walked out of there at 2 am after purchasing this $60 bottle of wine… which I absolutely overpaid for when doing research on this wine after the fact.
But, it really is good.
Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir
This is the Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, bottled in Oregon, and is their 2013 wine from that area. This wine is actually a blend of the fruits from the Ken Wright traditional vineyards.
Bouquet: Floral, mostly rose notes
Tasting Notes: Bright and sweet cherry, a hint of spice. This wine has a sweet and smooth beginning with a tart finish from the cherry
This Pinot Noir is actually one of the lightest that I have tried. Not only is it light in color, but it is also extremely light on the palette. This is not going to be for those that love a heavy red wine. But, it does have a pleasant flavor.
Overall, I would give this a 4 out of 5.
I look forward to trying some of the other blends from the Ken Wright Cellars.
